I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would bring out the truth in this situation and that You will allow Truth Social on the Google Play store. Promote free speech, God, even on the internet and social media.

Truth Social, Trump’s social media app, has been blocked from the Google Play store. As arguments over blame continue, we must pray. Post your prayer in the comments.

From CNBC. Truth Social, the would-be Twitter competitor created by Trump Media and Technology Group, remains unavailable on the Google Play store.

Google said the app lacks effective systems for moderating user-generated content, which violates the store’s terms of service.

“On Aug. 19, we notified Truth Social of several violations of standard policies in their current app submission and reiterated that having effective systems for moderating user-generated content is a condition of our terms of service for any app to go live on Google Play,” the tech company, which is owned by Alphabet, told CNBC in a statement Tuesday.

 

Axios first reported the Google statement.

The restriction means that Android users, who make up 44% of smartphone users in the U.S., can’t download the app. Google will not let the app go live until the content issues are addressed. Truth Social acknowledged Google’s concerns and said it would work on addressing these issues, according to Axios.

Trump Media and Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes told a different story. The former lawmaker, who was one of former President Donald Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress, said the decision is up to Google and not dependent on Truth Social’s policies.

“When are we going to be available on Android? Well, look, that’s up to the Google Play store. We’re waiting on them to approve us, I don’t know what’s taking so long,” Nunes said on the “Just the News Not Noise” podcast. “It sure would be nice if they would approve us….”

Trump Media and Technology Group made the app available for preorder on Android in early August. It is available on Apple’s App Store. Google’s YouTube has suspended Trump’s channel. Android users can still access Truth Social through the platform’s website….

To All Truth Loving Christians: Please don’t be overly worried about what is coming for President Trump. He is God’s anointed. Even he has said that this is not an easy path but we know that God will be victorious! We have been warned that he may be arrested. BUT we must NOT respond with violence! That’s what the Deep State wants us to do! We can make our voices heard but we mustn’t commit the chaos and crimes that are associated with the Deep State. And don’t become overwhelmed with worry and fear as a result of the doom and gloomers. Pray for President Trump and those who back him. And stand firm in God’s almighty power and His plan. “The best is yet to come!”

ATTENTION!… AN URGENT MESSAGE FOR THE W3 FOUNDATION MEMBERS!…

(Attention, the ensuing reply was prepared in the monospace Consolas Font [at 8-point BOLD], at a max screen width of 166 characters. To print, use “legal landscape”! Unfortunately, many websites do not have a “collapse widget” whereby lengthy replies can be efficiently and effectively “tucked away” to reduce “comment clutter”, nor a Blog Comment Host widget that/ which will afford MY CHOICE of font/ font size, and an ability to display a comment script utilizing the full screen width!

Fauxial Media Members, we need a “Federal INFORMATION Commission” (FIC) to transcend the Biden-Harris White House Task Force to Address Online Harassment and Abuse… and rather, than give the Constitutional breaching and UDHR breaching Federal COMMUNICATIONS Commission/ FCC (PROPERLY, SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING– IN PART– CORPORATE SOCIAL MEDIA COMPLIANCE WITH COMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURAL TECHNI̲C̲ PREQUALIFICATIONS… AND NOT FOR THE “INFORMATION JACKING” OF THE INFORMATION CONTENT OF AMERICANS’ FREE SPEECH!) any further opportunity to violate it’s̲ CONSTITUTIONALLY PRESCRIBED MANDATE! PROPERLY GOVERNING Free Speech… under the Life and Security of the Person Sections of the Constitution and the UDHR!… should be under the scope of a Federal INFORMATION Commission/ FIC (equipped, with Behavioural Sciences skill sets… e.g., INTRApersonal and INTERpersonal Intelligence [i.e., the “3 I{s}”], and “Forensic Sociocybernetics”… but, etc.!)! Heck, Federal, State and Local Police Agencies/ Services use such skill sets to profile the “bad guy”… and so, SURELY, an “FIC” can be equipped with the skill sets necessary to address Human Information Rights under HUMAN ICT RIGHTS (the latter, including “Human Communications Rights”/ “Human Duocarrier Rights”… and ICT, an amalgam of Human Digital Rights and Human Analog[l] Rights… and ALL under HUMAN RIGHTS!)! In fact, the FCC should be equipped to handle Human Communications Rights (Digital and Analog[l]… and e.g., Access and Privacy issues)!… AND NOT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION CONTENT BEING COMMUNICATED/ CARRIED! Access and Privacy on one’s PC or cellphone– for example!– are CARRIER ISSUES… NOT “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT (‘personal full data/ [information] content’)” ISSUES (i.e., though the “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT” may give rise to an FIC decision to effect an FCC removal of a Carrier Software Block on, or the imposition of a Carrier Software Block on a Communications device/ Carrier device [e.g., a cellphone or a PC], “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT” and “CARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT” are two distinct information concerns; and hence, the expression, INFORMATION & COMMUNICATION[S] TECHNES!)! In other words, “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT” and “CARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT (best expressed as, ‘DICARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT’… Digital and/ or Analog[l] Dicarrier Content)” are MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE GEMÓDEDO/ INFORMATION CONCERNS OF ICT! And, unfortunately, due to the failure to separate the two distinct information concerns of IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT and DICARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT… YEA, to separate ICT into it’s̲ two main components!… an FIC was missed, and only a part of our ICT concerns have been met!
.
On one side of the ledger, the FCC should be addressing “HUMAN DICARRIER-GEMÓDEDO RIGHTS”/ “Human Communications-Information Rights” (i.e., that/ which is specific to ANY ASPECT of the RIGHTFUL HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE CARRIAGE of webizens’ “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT”), and on the other side of the ledger an FIC should be addressing “HUMAN IDIOGEMÓDEDO RIGHTS”/ “Human Personal-information Rights” (i.e., that/ which is specific to ANY ASPECT of the RIGHTFUL FREE SPEECH AND FREE ACCESS of and to webizens’ “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT”)! And all of which, must be based upon a Constitutional/ UDHR balance of Life, Security of the Person and Equal Protections and Equal Benefits!
.
And once again, ICT would be best phrased as, GEMÓDEDO (for “full data”… data, the plural of datum) & DICARRIER (DUOCARRIER… i.e., Digital and Analog[l]) TECHNES/ GDT… to: a) express the dual aspect of the GEMÓDEDO being managed; b) express the dual aspect of the means whereby GEMÓDEDO is sent and received; and c) express the fact that there are two aspects of GEMÓDEDO and CARRIER “TECHNES (NOT ‘technologies’, or ‘studies of technes’!)” managed, sent and received on behalf of all webizens!

See, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information… and en.wiktionary.org/wiki/information#English
.
See, biblehub.com/greek/1073.htm (γέμω/ gemó, for “to be full”/ “filled”… GEMÓDEDO, not to be confused with the oft abused [and less than Greek!] use, “metadata”… or the correct Greek term, “metadedo”… see, μετά/ meta, for “after with”/ “change afterward” [see, bit.ly/3JQXjuw] and δεδομένα/ dedoména and δεδο/ dedo, for data).

The use of “that you would” and “that you will allow” are weak statements to be praying over this important topic.

1 John 5:14 tells us we can be confident that He will answer our prayers according to His word. God says we are to speak truth and not lies. That is just one example from scripture that God does not want words of truth to be blocked or hindered.

Father, we speak to those who are responsible for setting the policies at Google Play. You will not hinder truth from being spoken through your platform any longer in Jesus Name. We declare God’s kingdom reigns in the operations of Google Play, the enemy’s influence is broken, and the Holy Spirit now sets the agenda for this company and it will come to pass in Jesus name. Amen (so be it)

All of us “Deplorables” will soon look like angels compared to these “Dispicables” who steal our freedom of speech at every turn. Lord please rebuke them and direct their spirit-hearts to your Truth, Righteousness and Justice so we can all live in Peace as America is made great again!!! In YaHshUaH’s Name I pray.

It gives me no joy to write this piece.
.
Even a cursory review of the redacted version of the affidavit submitted in support of the government’s application for a search warrant at the home of former President Donald Trump reveals that he will soon be indicted by a federal grand jury for three crimes: Removing and concealing national defense information (NDI), giving NDI to those not legally entitled to possess it, and obstruction of justice by failing to return NDI to those who are legally entitled to retrieve it.
.
When he learned from a phone call that 30 FBI agents were at the front door of his Florida residence with a search warrant and he decided to reveal this publicly, Trump assumed that the agents were looking for classified top-secret materials that they’d allege he criminally possessed. His assumptions were apparently based on his gut instinct and not on a sophisticated analysis of the law. Hence, his public boast that he declassified all the formerly classified documents he took with him.
.
Unbeknownst to him, the feds had anticipated such a defense and are not preparing to indict him for possessing classified materials, even though he did possess hundreds of voluntarily surrendered materials marked “top secret.” It is irrelevant if the documents were declassified, as the feds will charge crimes that do not require proof of classification. They told the federal judge who signed the search warrant that Trump still had NDI in his home. It appears they were correct.
.
Under the law, it doesn’t matter if the documents on which NDI is contained are classified or not, as it is simply and always criminal to have NDI in a non-federal facility, to have those without security clearances move it from one place to another, and to keep it from the feds when they are seeking it. Stated differently, the absence of classification — for whatever reason — is not a defense to the charges that are likely to be filed against Trump.
.
Yet, misreading and underestimating the feds, Trump actually did them a favor. One of the elements that they must prove for any of the three crimes is that Trump knew that he had the documents. The favor he did was admitting to that when he boasted that they were no longer classified. He committed a mortal sin in the criminal defense world by denying something for which he had not been accused.
.
The second element that the feds must prove is that the documents actually do contain national defense information. And the third element they must prove is that Trump put these documents into the hands of those not authorized to hold them and stored them in a non-federally secured place. Intelligence community experts have already examined the documents taken from Trump’s home and are prepared to tell a jury that they contain the names of foreign agents secretly working for the U.S. This is the crown jewel of government secrets. Moreover, Trump’s Florida home is not a secure federal facility designated for the deposit of NDI.
.
The newest aspect of the case against Trump that we learned from the redacted affidavit is the obstruction allegation. This is not the obstruction that Robert Mueller claimed he found Trump committed during the Russia investigation. This is a newer obstruction statute, signed by President George W. Bush in 2002, that places far fewer burdens on the feds to prove. The older statute is the one Mueller alleged. It characterizes any material interference with a judicial function as criminal. Thus, one who lies to a grand jury or prevents a witness from testifying commits this variant of obstruction.
.
But the Bush-era statute, the one the feds contemplate charging Trump with having violated, makes it a crime of obstruction by failing to return government property or by sending the FBI on a wild goose chase looking for something that belongs to the government and that you know that you have. This statute does not require the preexistence of a judicial proceeding. It only requires that the defendant has the government’s property, knows that he has it and baselessly resists efforts by the government to get it back.
.
Where does all this leave Trump? The short answer is: in hot water. The longer answer is: He is confronting yet again the federal law enforcement and intelligence communities for which he has rightly expressed such public disdain. He had valid points of expression during the Russia investigation. He has little ground upon which to stand today.
.
I have often argued that many of these statutes that the feds have enacted to protect themselves are morally unjust and not grounded in the Constitution. One of my intellectual heroes, the great Murray Rothbard, taught that the government protects itself far more aggressively than it protects our natural rights.
.
In a monumental irony, both Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks journalist who exposed American war crimes during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, and Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency employee who exposed criminal mass government surveillance upon the American public, stand charged with the very same crimes that are likely to be brought against Trump. On both Assange and Snowden, Trump argued that they should be executed. Fortunately for all three, these statutes do not provide for capital punishment.
.
Rothbard warned that the feds aggressively protect themselves. Yet, both Assange and Snowden are heroic defenders of liberty with valid moral and legal defenses. Assange is protected by the Pentagon Papers case, which insulates the media from criminal or civil liability for revealing stolen matters of interest to the public, so long as the revealer is not the thief. Snowden is protected by the Constitution, which expressly prohibits the warrantless surveillance he revealed, which was the most massive peacetime abuse of government power.
.
What will Trump say is his defense to taking national defense information? I cannot think of a legally viable one.

I am 72 years young and never have I seen a man more hated or lied on than President Trump! GOD please deliver us from the devil and his demons who on every hand is after President Trump whose one crime was to have the audacity to NOT be a crooked politician and to run for President and win! FATHER GOD I decree that No weapon formed against President Trump shall prosper and every tongue that rises against him in judgment, he shall condemn! This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their righteousness is of ME saith the LORD! FATHER GOD please send YOUR angels to surround and protect and fight every battle for us and President Trump in JESUS NAME! “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world saith our GOD! Thank YOU FATHER for fighting this and other battles for us and for SHUTTING THE MOUTHS OF THE DERANGED in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!
